A Classic

What better place to eat than on patio watching airplanes. Fly here to eat several times a year. Food is good. Friendly staff. Not sure why others had bad experience. Will go back again soon.

The burgers here used to be very good, recently in fact. But they have been replaced by a pre-fab tasteless disc with no character or pleasure in the eating. Very disappointed as that is what went to get, a decent hand made burger. And at $10, a rip. I don't mind paying that for a good flavorful burger, but this... More

Love the sautéed chicken livers. While food here is overpriced, it is very good. Service could be improved. View small aircraft taking off and landing from your table.

On the recommendation of my parents' friends we decided to go here. We ordered the spinach dip which wasn't special. The Caesar salad with blackened chicken was a sad thing to see much less taste. The blackened chicken was bland, the Caesar dressing was greasy and bland, and the croutons came out of a box. They put the hot chicken... More

We were very happy with the window seat. There was a visit from a B29 Bomber plane named "Fifi" The staff was very accommodating. It was a very busy day. The food was not exceptional but the experience was great. I would recommend this place. I shared chicken fingers with the kids. My husband had the meatloaf sandwich. I would... More

Yep.. This is something you must try to have while your in Cincinnati. Hot and spicy chili!!!! I tried and I am still alive. I mean it can be too hot for some people and luckily I can handle it. Test good though.

Varied menu with very attentive service. Our granddaughter loved seeing the airplanes taxi, takeoff and land. My wife and I have always enjoyed the food and service...never a bad time to visit this well established restaurant.

Let's go to Lunken Airport and eat at the Sky Galley! Sounds like fun, right? Don't do it. This place has seen its glory days. It is a tired, old bar with tired, old food. It's cheap. I'll give you that, but that's about it. The run down airport lobby says it all. "There's more of this inside." Hamburgers rank... More

The food is good (3 or 4 stars), but you come here for the ambiance of being at a busy general aviation airport with a rich aviation history. I really enjoyed the experience!

While visiting family, our daughter chose this restaurant. Located in the Lunken Airport building, is a small restaurant of booths and mostly tables, plus a bar. We were seated in the glassed in dining area where we watched the planes come in and fly out. There is a nice, eclectic group of people dining here and it reminds you of... More
